The village of Carey is moving forward with a sidewalk construction project. The Courier reports council gave first reading to an ordinance that would allow Administrator Roy Johnson to contract for sidewalk installation on the east side of Glenn Avenue. If approved the sidewalk would be built near the new school building.
The first reading passed 4-2. Council President Armand Getz and Councilman Chad Kin voted against it. Getz says he would rather build the sidewalk on the west side of the street, which would place the sidewalk all on village property. However students would have to cross South Vance Street to get to it. The road doubles as U.S. 23 through Carey.
The 400 feet of sidewalk is estimate to cost $12,000 to install.
